An outdoor nightclub for teens, Studio K debuted in Fiesta Village on the location of the former Old MacDonald's Farm petting zoo. On its opening night, June 15, 1984, the dance club featured a huge 4,800-square-foot dance floor to accommodate over 1,000 dancers. With a state of the art lighting and sound system, a DJ booth played the latest hits, laser lights filled the air, and a 12-foot high video screen showed music videos. Studio K even had a special, reserved area for pop and break dancing. For its summer debut, the admission to Studio K was included in the $8 price of admission for teenagers entering Knott's after 7pm. The nightlife ended at Studio K with the close of '80s and the space was rented for private parties. The enormous nightclub was demolished in 1994 to make way for the Jaguar roller coaster.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
